For more than 40 years, large, beer-thirsty crowds have descended on the West Flanders town of Diksmuide for this joyous beer festival. It is held in a large beer hall (Boterhalle) on the main market square and set to a backdrop of music and dance.
With more than 130 breweries and 400 types of beer, Belgium can claim to be the world's beer capital. This is an excellent opportunity to drink your way through a fair few of them. And if you're in need of a little help, an oom-pa-pa band will get everyone dancing and into the drinking mood!
